morning. what can president obama or governor romney due to work with the next congress? do think this will lead to a greater assertion of executive authority in the next term? guest: thank you, john. i did not know i would be facing the toughest questioners. students and journalism students. let me take your question. congressional approval is at an all-time low. it is up there with paris hilton and the communist party of russia. i think we need to step back and understand many people in this country see the political system as broken. others -- elizabeth warren -- have spoken house some money have seen the system rigged against them. -- so many americans see the system rigged against them. there is a few that those who dislike government for the past 40 years have a stake in diminishing the reputation of government, of congress. i would argue that we have seen a movement in these last 40 years to debase role of government. callback and read the book on lyndon johnson. the use or abuse of the filibuster has been used or abuse in the last 10 days or three years more than once in t

this morning. as you know, syndicated columnist and has a new book out. this is what for you? >> nine. >> number nine. >> number nine. >> it's called "mugged!" it's subtitle racial, demogoguery from the 70's to obama. we're going to talk with her about that but also starting point is few days after this debate, where do you think the presidential race is right now? >> i think mitt romney is looking very good. that's why the obama administration didn't want to run against mitt romney. he was clearly the most threatening of the republican candidates. i think he's the strongest candidate against obama. it's hard to take out an incumbent. republicans have only done it one time before in the last 100 years. when reagan beat carter. i guess isn't the last time it's happened when clinton took out bush, right? so it's curious, for example that there were 70 million viewers of that debate the other night, the highest it's been since 1992, the last time an incumbent was taken out. i think that's because people are uncomfortable with obama but if they're not political nuts, like we are, they hav

to you. >> good morning. i voted for obama because governor romney is all over the place. one day it is one thing and the following day is something else. i cannot trust this man at all. i can't believe that people can trust him. the business that he had, and destroying companies, putting people out of work. in chicago right now, there is people on strike because the company 10 years ago, the people had to train chinese and japanese and people begging him to go there and he did not go there. i don't see how people can vote for him. it is incredible. >> thanks for the call, another early voter. dodge democrats are counting. michele obama had 6800 supporters and she ended by saying i want you to follow the staff to the hamilton county board of elections and vote now. it is critical for both sides to get as many in the bank as possible. 61% means republicans and independents, voting to repeal that. they voted to send a message to repeal obama care. independence are critical. the judge these things as best they can. but on the same ballot an election cycle, they are sending a message

to those events. -- i had a different view. >> how would you compare the obama campaign that you were part of compared to the one today? and how would you contrast the obama campaign versus the romney campaign? >> that's a great question. when -- we used to have a meeting every morning in chicago. i remember sitting in this room, it was made in september or october or maybe around this time and every morning we would have a meeting of the senior staff. i remember looking out the window of a high-rise and thinking will i ever do this again? everybody coming together and you plan out what the point to happen during the day. at night i would come home and turn on the tv. you have the meeting and everybody scatters and does what they're going to do. and you hear what the candidate is going to do that day and then i would come home at night and see how the day when my turn on the tv. umc the events in some faraway city playing out the way you had talked about in the morning. it was kind of magical. i think that i thought i was pretty much done then, so i decided at that moment i was not going t
